Huck Finn Chapter 3 Storyboard
This storyboard does not have a description.
If God can you give you anything through prayer, can I pray for fish hooks and get some?
You need to pray, because if you pray for something, God will give it to you!
Give me your doughnuts!
Huck is confused as to why he needs to pray, and how Miss Watson says that people can pray for what they want or need. He learns that they do not receive physical gifts, but spiritual gifts according to the Widow Douglas. He decides prayer is pointless.
Meanwhile, Huck and Tom Sawyer's Gang have not been doing illegal, as they were just chasing around other kids and stealing not anything profitable from them. Tom Sawyer claims that he and his gang will encounter many things such as Arabs and Spaniards, but these thoughts just come from imagination, as he reads a lot of books, one of them being Don Quixote.
A literary concept being used in this chapter is diction demonstrated by Huckleberry Finn. He says 'stead rather than instead. The theme/ main idea of Chapter 3 is that Huck is pretty gullible, as he believes everything the people around him say. He shows this by believing that prayer can grant you anything which was said by Miss Watson, and how genies were real, which was said by Tom Sawyer. From this he should learn that believing what other people say is not a wise option, as they may not be trustworthy.
